C64 v Raspberry Pi face-off

April 20, 2012

At Wednesday’s Open Session at our Maker Space, Jon was giving a Commodore 64 an MOT and I had a Raspberry Pi on show.

By the end of the session, the C64 was sorted and we had gotten VICE a C64 emulator working on the RPi. So we had a good old fashion face off between them.

After a long wait, I got my Raspberry Pi last week, Thursday 12th April to be precise 🙂

It wasn’t until Sunday till I found some time to get it set up and after little messing around trying to find a SD Card that would work in my old-ish PC I got it to boot up in Debian boot image found on the Raspberry Pi site.

I’m off to my local Maker Space in Newcastle to do a quick show and tell with it tonight..

Exciting news, well for me anyway. I was getting frustrated not been able to store my project design files on this blog so I’ve started a new website:


It’s still early days but I’m planning on putting all my project design files there and perhaps a wiki as well to support them better.
